This is a set of resource materials for second-semester introductory physics, developed at the University of Virginia. The unifying theme of the course is applying Newton’s Laws to a small segment of a large system to find laws governing the system as a whole. Resources include complete lecture notes, demonstrations, links to related interactive simulations, problem sets/study sheets for students, and downloadable animated spreadsheets. Physics 152 covers topics that include gravity, waves and oscillations, fluids, heat, and thermodynamics. It is intended for prospective physics majors or students who have some preparation in the fundamentals of calculus.

This text provides a collection of physics demonstrations costing very little to produce yet illustrating key concepts in amazingly simple and playful ways. Intended for instructors, students, and curious lay readers, these demonstrations make use of easily accessible, everyday items: food coloring and glycerine swirled and then "unmixed" in a container demonstrate aspects of the entropy law; raw eggs thrown with full force at a sheet but not breaking illustrate Newton's second law (f=ma); and the reflection off a glass Christmas tree ball is the focus of an explanation on "turning the world inside out."

Physlet Physics contains a collection of exercises spanning the introductory physics sequence. These exercises use computer animations generated in Java applets to show physics content. We call these Java applets Physlets (Physics content simulated with Java applets). The second edition to Physlet Physics represents a major change in how the 800 Physlet-based interactive materials are delivered to teachers and students alike. Instead of accessing materials off of the CD that came with the first edition, now users simply access the Physlet Physics 2E from ComPADRE. This new edition is compatible with Java 6 and 7 and offers improved speed and security.

This page is part of a collection of physics applets which accompany the book 'Physlets: Teaching Physics with Interactive Curricular Material' by Christian and Belloni. It contains a set of applet-based concept questions for use in physics classrooms. The questions are intended to probe student understanding and elicit misconceptions. Electronic student response systems (clickers) are often used to allow anonymous "voting" on the correct answer. Included topics within this collection are mechanics, electromagnetism, and advanced physics. This page is part of a much larger collection of applets and related curriculum materials developed specifically for teaching with Physlets, as well as a wide range of tools for input and display of information.

This resource is a collection of introductory physics homework assignments developed as an alternative to traditional textbook exercises. These assignments were designed for use with the Activity-Based Physics instructional method (ABP). Students use observational skills and mathematical modeling, combined with basic physics, to solve problems related to a single situation, such as riding a bicycle or tailgating while driving. Each assignment integrates a variety of concepts and requires students to establish cause and effect relationships. Assignments are available in the following subject categories: mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and waves.

Annenberg Media Projects Learner Online site in 1997 added a section of online exhibits, an extension of its educational multi-media collection. The first exhibit, The Middle Ages, portrays every day life in Medieval times and contains sections on religion, homes, clothing, health, arts, and town life. Each section provides a short essay and links to related sites, and may also offer an interactive quiz or activity. This is the first of what is to be a series of monthly exhibits aimed at K-12 students and other interested users. Learners of all ages can consult Learner Online for information on Annenberg/CPB projects and can also visit a video preview room (RealPlayer or VDOLive), and consult a guide to math and science reform, and SAMI (Science and Math Initiatives), a "clearinghouse of resources, funding, and curriculum for... math and science teachers."

This small collection from Learner.org provides a unique digital lab for teachers to explore new ideas in learning. The activities are designed around four strands: patterns in mathematics, seasonal changes and moon phases, geometry, and the nature of light. Each section features interactive exercises to challenge teachers' thinking about logic, pattern recognition, shape and structure, symbolic relationships, and mathematical reasoning. The authors then delve into the learning theory behind the activities and how it can be extended to learners of different ages and abilities. Each module provides links to hands-on activities for the classroom.
